I agree with snaplock. Tactical bags look cool. For remaining inconspicous a non-tatctical bag makes it difficult for people with nefarious plans to determine if fyrefly76 is going to be easy pickin, or will she be packing an unexpected surprise? Nothing against Maxpedition, 5.11 and Vanquest bags/packs. But some of us prefer to keep a lower profile. Being an older citizen, I do not want to looked at as a soft target if TSHTF, I would think women would follow similar strategies.
